    Fun trail with the typical northern Indiana terrain; well-draining sand/gravel and a few roots. Lots of short punchy up and downs, some nice berms, and a few small drops thrown in for the adventurous. Trail was well marked and maintained with a few intermediate level (again, well-marked) side excursions that included the drops mentioned earlier and steeper climbs/descends. It had rained very hard only a few hours before riding and was perfectly fine (aside from a few slick spots). That kind of rain would have shut down my home clay infested trails in central Indiana for at least a couple days. Had the whole trail system to myself which is a shame. I always like talking to the local riders to make sure I didn't miss anything. I rated this trail as a 3 as compared to Brown County as a 5. I'd certainly ride it again when back in the area.

    For the area, an excellent trail. It's easy enough for a beginner and fun enough if you've been riding a while. Well marked and maintained.

    Great trail. Nice flowy downhills. Only problem is that there is some sand at the end of some of the burms to keep you on your toes. Worth the detour off I80/90 if you need to take a break from driving.

    Great little trail. Great for a nice work out after work and for working on basic skills. Trail is getting better each year.

    Muchos Gracias Hoosier trail builders. It's a nice flowy trail, even has some beamed corners on downhill sections but is not hard. Makes the most of the space available. I was very happy to find a nice fun trail instead of hitting the hotel treadmill.

    Very smooth and great flowing single track. Very easy to follow trail. There's a few sections of intermediate but that is mostly hillier than the esy sections. Greg course an well kept.

    Rode for mtb for the first time yesterday. I had the pleasure of experiencing a wide range of surfaces (sand, gravel, stone, large rocks, pavers, roots and wooden trail bridges), hills and tight corners. I will definitely be returning to this course with the help of beerdeadbaxter. Great course with options for the inexperienced to take it easy or ramp it up and make your adrenaline pump.

    Love this course!! its got a lot of quick tight turns that are a lot of fun as well as some great little jumps scattered through out the course. The 1 mile loop is the best place to start to warm up before hitting the back section.

    I would consider this to be my home single track. It is the closest to me and have been riding it at least once a week. To describe it in one sentence: It is a fun fast track with a nice, well balanced variety. It is a good variety of hills, meadow run, wooded trails, banked turns, the whole bit. It is a nice fast beginner/intermediate run that will keep all riders entertained. Raccoon Rollers is a fun stretch; be sure to hit the more technical, 1 mile, Valley Line Loop. See you on the track!

    One of my favorite courses in the area. Nice flowing trail with some technical skills required at times. The raccoon rollers are a blast. Fun short loop half way through.

    There doing a great job of up keeping this trail (ex. just the other day while I was out riding I came across some one using a leaf blower to clear the trail. Trail are all very well marked now as well. Great place to take some one new but if you hit there intermit sections even a more seasoned rider will have fun.

    Well groomed and hardpacked trail. This would be good for the whole family. The total distance is about 5.25 miles.

    New trail signage still needs to be added and some surfaces need grooming and compacting. But should be a great trail this coming year
